Bolshoi Theatre Chorus

Famous quotes containing the words theatre and/or chorus:

    People fall out of windows, trees tumble down,
    Summer is changed to winter, the young grow old
    The air is full of children, statues, roofs
    And snow. The theatre is spinning round,
    Colliding with deaf-mute churches and optical trains.
    The most massive sopranos are singing songs of scales.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    The rich earth, of its own self made rich,
    Fertile of its own leaves and days and wars,
    Of its brown wheat rapturous in the wind,
    The nature of its women in the air,
    The stern voices of its necessitous men,
    This chorus as of those that wanted to live.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
